Magic Languages started in response to the growing need to learn and master foreign languages in today’s increasingly globalized world. We offer programs in Spanish, French and Mandarin specially designed for children and babies to enhance their capacity for communication in practical ways.
We believe that it is essential to take advantage of early developmental phases to give children the benefit of learning a new language in a fun and natural manner.
Beatriz Tejedor is the founder of Magic-Languages. Born and raised in Spain, she received her law degree from the University of Barcelona in 2008. At a very young age, Bea learned the value of being multilingual; in addition to growing up in a bilingual Spanish/Catalan household, she learned French spending her summers in France and English working through her professional career. After practicing law for several years, she moved to Canada, living first in Montreal and then Toronto. Amazed by the diversity in this city, Bea started Magic-Languages in 2013. After several years of teaching Spanish as a second language to adults, Bea realized how fascinating and natural the learning process was with the children. Complemented by her deep family values, Bea discovered a passion for early childhood education. She identifies three important elements in the learning process: a connection with the teacher, a favorable environment and the consistency of the practice.
Magic-Languages’ methodology is rooted in these three basic elements, paired with a thoughtful curriculum. The goal of each and every class is that the children thoroughly enjoy the activities, not realizing how much they are learning and that they are communicating in a new language. Empathy is fundamental in order to accomplish this goal.
Since Magic-Languages started, Beatriz has worked every day in order to develop this educational project through the incorporation of new elements, improving the curriculum and reaching new students. This is part of the greater objective of creating a better understanding of and connection to the global community.
